Parents and guardians in New Orleans are making decisions on which schools in the city's overhauled
education system they want their children to attend next fall.

The state's Recovery School District, which took over most New Orleans public schools after Hurricane Katrina, oversees 70 schools.

The RSD runs 33 directly, while 37 are run by independent charter organizations.

The deadline for applications to those schools is Friday.

Some schools are expected to be more sought-after than others.

Schools that have more applicants than available spots will conduct lotteries by April 30 to fill those seats.
